Ensigns are the identifying flags flown to denominate the citizenship of shipping vessels, either military or civilian. Such flags display the United Kingdom Union Flag in the canton (the upper corner next to the staff), with either a red, white or blue field, dependent on whether the vessel is civilian, naval, or in a special category. These are known as the red, white, and blue ensigns respectively. Outside the nautical sphere, ensigns are used to designate many other military units, government departments and administrative divisions. Other Country Ensigns can be purchased, including historical replicas for use in film, stage or TV productions plus Pilot Jacks and historic maritime flags including "The Little Ships" Dunkirk Jack.
